Nice shots Jim!

And a Merry Christmas to all and to all a good, steady night, no breeze, warm, dark skies and perhaps an adult beverage....or two.

I cannot seem to send images from my iPhone library to the AP user group. If I get these images to you can you post them for me?

Well they need to do something; don't laugh, this is probably what they actually want to do. 

A better fix would be kick out Sleepy Joe and put Pres. Trump back in.

ALSO, I got laid off for the winter so I will be working on getting your AP catalogs scanned.

BTW have a Merry Christmas Jim. This year flew past me. Where did it go?

I sent a message to the seller explaining the error of his ways. Even if it's a 155EDIF, 2.7 inch focuser, it's worth around $10,000.
I sold mine back in 2006 for $9000. Perhaps a family member is selling it for or after a family member?

The listing said "best offer" starting at $5,000

so it's possible the seller low-balled the initial number to see what offers s/he would get

You know what they say...If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is!

Thanks Ray!

At some point, I am sure that I will be using both at the same time, so I will buy another copy.  Glad that the second copy is much less.


Re: 155 Starfire EDF F7 For Sale

In addition to the unnecessarily, and possibly counterproductively, low price, it seems a bit odd that the ad contains so little – one poor photo, one scanty line of description, no history. Sellers of high-end scopes usually know what potential buyers are interested in and what features are important. You have to wonder about the provenance of this scope.

Maybe the eventual buyer is on this forum and will give us the story.

Re: Production Sequence Query

weems@...
 

I’ve been watching. They aren’t coming up as often, and go very quickly. There have been multiple want ads posted, sometimes for weeks. It seems there is more demand than supply for a lighter mount with AP quality and features. I’ll keep looking. No immediate rush, since my class is about to wrap up for the year, and I have the 900 for personal use in my observatory.

Funny it's not sold yet.  Seems at that price, it would sell in the first hour or less.  Looks like the small 2.5" focuser.

That is just way inexpensive for the 155.  Wow, what a bargain if it's what it is advertised.  


Re: 155 Starfire EDF F7 For Sale

Howard Ritter
 

Even if it has the 2.7” focuser that mine came with ~25y ago (and that I still have, hoping for a Mach2 mount), $5000 seems like a very very good price (for the buyer!). I don’t know in what world a pristine StarFire 155EDF should command no more than 70% of the price of a new FSQ 106, but I didn’t think it was this one!

Tom,

I live on the north side of Colorado Springs. It’s a relatively short drive to anywhere in Denver. I’m waiting for the seller to answer some questions. If I don’t buy it, I can make time to pick it up and ship it to whomever does.
